Social Audit Program for the Local Road Construction Project San Antonio del Monte

This social audit experience was used in the project to build a six kilometer local road in El Salvador. The project benefited 500 families directly and an additional 1,000 families indirectly, all low-income. Project duration was eight months, including training community delegates in the social auditing process and conducting supervision, evaluation, monitoring, and control of the physical work. This project helped enhance the municipal administration’s receptivity to greater participation by the beneficiary population and contributed to improved project administration. This experience has the potential for replication through synergetic learning processes. This is true because of the tangible savings in investment and use of resources.
